12 Wrestling Championship Belts And The Amazing Stories Related To Them

I love watching WWE. When I was young, I would always stay up late just to catch the newest episode of WWE Raw or SmackDown. It was a great experience to witness the likes of Goldberg, Brock Lesnar, Big Show, Triple H, and John Cena.

Whenever a championship match was held, I would always wonder how an opponent would be beaten. Was it through pinfall, disqualification, or tap out? Once a new champion was crowned, I would admire their glory as they raised their championship belts. It's only right that we once again take a look at these magnificent championship belts. Read on!

12. WWE Intercontinental Championship Belt

12. WWE Intercontinental Championship Belt

Thanks to its largely golden design, the blue shade representing the world pops out easily. It's a simple design that works effectively. I remember seeing Randy Orton holding this belt as if it was his baby.

11. Smoking Skull WWF Championship Belt

The Smoking Skull edition of the WWF Championship Belt fits the aggressive attitude of Stone Cold Steve Austin and Mick Foley back in the day. I think the combination of gold and red really worked out well.

10. ECW World Heavyweight Championship Belt

10. ECW World Heavyweight Championship Belt

I am not that familiar with ECW, but it was certainly an exciting moment when ECW briefly returned to attack WWE. You might think that this is an ugly belt, but the nature of ECW as a rough and tough environment makes the belt design beautiful in its own right.

9. WCW United States Championship Belt

Like the other belts, this one was also golden and had alluring patterns. At the middle was the flag of the United States and the eagle spreading its wings. I also admire the black color that perfectly contrasts the golden tone.

8. WWE United States Championship Belt

The first wrestler to win this modern belt was the great Eddie Guerrero in 2003. It might not be as minimalist as the WCW version, but the bigger look of the U.S. flag to compensate for the disappearance of the eagle in the middle was a great decision.

7. WWE Womens' World Championship Belt

I loved watching Lita, Victoria, and Trish Stratus show how aggressive they can be in the ring. This championship belt expresses femininity with the white leather sides and the beads while also looking grand because of the red tone.

6. WWE Cruiserweight Championship Belt

6. WWE Cruiserweight Championship Belt

Even though it's not golden, this belt still exemplifies the unique environment of cruiserweight wrestling. The design makes it sleek, which complements the flexibility of the cruiserweights.

5. TNA X Division Championship Belt

5. TNA X Division Championship Belt

This championship belt was the equivalent of WWE's cruiserweight championship belt. I've even heard of people declaring that TNA had more entertaining cruiserweights than WWE.

4. WWF Attitude Era Championship Belt

I'll be honest and say that this looks like the bigger and better version of the Intercontinental Championship belt. The globe and the spread wings look absolutely intricate here.

3. WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championship Belt

3. WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championship Belt

Just like the Cruiserweight Championship belt, this does not have a golden color. Instead, it has the blue and silver tone. I believe that it's a fantastic design, especially when you see the Greek helmets.

2. Winged Eagle WWF Championship Belt

I wasn't young enough to have seen this on television, but the design is clearly a classic. The wings helped give it an attitude while the black and gold colors gave it a strong appearance.

1. WWE World Heavyweight Championship Belt

This iconic championship belt was also known as the Big Gold Belt. It first appeared at the National Wrestling Alliance before becoming the biggest WCW title.

After a decade, WWE decided to adopt the same championship belt. It's massive, gold, and intricately designed. Whether it was Batista, Chris Benoit, or Ric Flair wearing it, I have always admired the simple grandeur of this belt.

Which championship belt looks the best for you?
